Welcome to Witch Haven. Where nothing is quite what it seems.
I’m back in the last place I want to be. A place where my magic went rogue, and people died. Witch Haven should be a haven, but I messed that up big time.
I have no friends to help me. No family left. And not even a witch’s familiar to keep me on the right path.
Magic used to flow through me, but now I’m a lone witch, drained of power and hoping I can sneak into Witch Haven, clear up the mess my stepmom left behind, and get out alive.
If the villagers find out I’m here, I’ll be hunted down. If the Magic Council catch me using anything more powerful than a light spell, I’ll go back to jail. And if my guilt doesn’t choke me, the gnomes will.
So yeah. Home sweet home never felt so unwelcoming.
This book starts off dark. Indigo is returning to Witch Haven Village, where she hasn’t been in many years. She was there last time and caused the murder of many but doesn’t know why. She is an elemental witch specializing in fire magic. She came back to clear and sell her old home now that her stepmother had passed.
She has some interesting conversations with her stepmother’s familiars. As this story progresses, she gets into more trouble but also discovers she has some friends.
The story does end happily, but then it gets strange with a new adventure to go on.
This book was filled with adventure, magic, and a lot of problems to solve. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this story. I would say it was a mystery story, but it did contain lots of action and adventure as she journeys back to her old life and must save her friend and solve some of her own issues. I love the addition of the three talking animals as familiars and her confidence growing as she went thru the story. The author set this book up to lead the next story, and the characters are interesting enough to read it. This book is all about witches, good and bad, ghosts, and lots of magic. I did enjoy this story.
